AUC’s physics program provides students with thorough and flexible training in the fundamental aspects of classical and modern physics. It devotes equal attention to three academic areas: teaching, research, and service to the community. The program produces high-caliber physicists committed to helping their country and capable of introducing creative solutions to current and future real-life problems.
Students of the Program
This program is suitable for students who are interested in the following:
- Understanding the universe in a fundamental way
- The theory of relativity
- Quantum mechanics
- Particle physics
Many opportunities are available for students to gain hands-on experience, including internships in the solar industry and other areas of physics in prestigious research institutes in Egypt and abroad.
Graduates of the program have gone on to pursue careers in the following fields:
